    @ obsession hurting your poker game: i have heard many top nosebleed pros say that they think most ppl who play at the highest level are obsessed with poker, and that an obsession with poker is needed to get to these stakes.

    #5 - can you please provide the time. I don't think obsession about the game is inherently negative. I'd like to hear it in context to make sure it doesn't sound like that.

    watch "poker, a kid's game" on bluefire (i personally got it free from one of my poker buddies a while ago, if u want i can send it to u). They basicalllly said that in order to make it to the highest level u basically have to devote your entire life to poker and basically obssess over it.

    I mean where is the mentioning of obsession in this video. I agree with the above statement so would like to ensure whatever I said about obsession elaborated on it and didn't contradict it.

    u mentoined it around the 10:15 mark here. based on "a kid's game" it seemed like the high stakes players had a very degenerate lifestyle (ie: not much socializing and exercises) as they moved up limits.

    Hi, great vid. I have a question, If a person has in general basic low level of serotonin (due to physiology mostly or maybe lifechoices) is there a way to permanently set a higher basic level or does the individual has to raise it "every day" again and again to "reach the level of in comaprsion other higher based individual"?
